Festival 2022

All community organisations operating in Jesmond are asked to come up with ideas for events to form part of a proposed 2022 Jesmond Community Festival. First ideas were discussed at a meeting of Jesmond Community Forum held on 16 November 2021 and all suggestions have been requested to be submitted to info@jesmondfestival.org.uk by the end of January 2022. All proposed events will be shown on this website, as they come forward. The festival is likely to take place between Saturday 7 May and Sunday 5 June 2022.

Dates for 2022 Festival

Dates for 2022 Festival

In 2022 there is to be a special long Bank Holiday weekend to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June. St George’s Church are already planning a Big Friendly Gathering on the green on Saturday 4 June, so this long weekend seems to be an ideal high spot with which to end next year’s Jesmond Community Festival. A start date has not yet been finalised – it could be on Saturday 7 May, or another day early in May, depending on the views of participating groups. Let us have your views by emailing info@jesmondcommunityfestival.co.uk .
